  1. I ended up with 2.5 lb of perch fillets and 4.7 lb of pike. Fish for supper.[emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. Prof T and I had a good day today. We limited on Pike and caught 96 perch. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Very sad outcome. Be careful!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Looks like 2 on snowmobiles may have gone through on Black Lake. They found their helmets. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Just heard one of our local lakes has open water again. Be careful!!! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. I’ve been on Honeyoye . My friend live there. Cheering for the Bills. There offense needs to heat up but defense is holding on. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Nope just drove down to check. Often avoid the weekend crowds since I can fish any day. Especially now when fishing locations are limited. If Chaumont ever develops safe ice it will relieve much of the pressure near me now. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Looks to me like we might make it through January with no below zero temperatures. Most all places with ice fishing access have been very crowded. There were 20 vehicles at Hyde Lake parking area this morning. Lot was full and a couple parked up the hill. The 1000 Islands area has been absolutely pounded the last couple weeks.

  9. I heard it opened up all the way to Cherry Island and into Guffins Bay. Not sure what the two shanties were fishing for but perhaps perch as I didn’t see tipups. Looks like it might tighten up next week. Big crowds on LOTI and Goose Bay as many from downstate are looking for safe ice. We fished both spots this week and it was very slow for us.

  10. I saw 2 shanties about 50 yards off shore just before Long Point State Park. I’ll stay on safer ice till conditions improve. Open water at Shangrila.
  11. I’ve had an 18’ Lund Alaskan since 2007. It tows easily and rides well. It can handle anything I care to fish in on Lake Ontario. It’s also a very versatile boat and can be used with a blind as a duck boat. If you are looking for something a bit larger they make a 20 footer. Many river rats on the SLR own Alaskans.

  12. Very true. I once drove my vehicle onto Eel Bay and was the first on the ice that day. It was still dark and people had previously driven on the ice. For some reason I stopped and cut a hole and there was over a foot of ice. As I reentered my vehicle it was breaking light enough for me to see open water about 125 yards ahead. Lesson learned! I’ve only put 1 leg through near a dock and had a friend do the same where current ate away the ice. I also had a friend drop his new snowmobile through (in a spot he had crossed earlier) while we were fishing the river. On another occasion two friend drop through as they walked toward us. We had used a snowmobile and a 4 wheeler to get to the spot and were able to get them out. Experience has made me much more cautious. Particularly on the SLR where current can change conditions in a hurry. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Beautiful fish and well earned. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Navionics is good Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Everything I researched points to BH 209. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  16. Well, thanks to Rusty I have some Barnes Bullet to try! I have been fortunate to meet some great people on this forum that are generous sharing information. Also made some terrific friends. I’ve decided to switch to BH 209 powder. With a bit of testing I believe I will find a very good preforming load! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  17. I plan to. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  18. Guess I’m have to see if they shoot in my Pro Hunter and figure out a load that works. Anyone have suggestions? Still haven’t ruled out the Barnes 250 grain as I believe they should be similar to the shockwaves my gun likes. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  19. Justin, I have shot 158 and 180 grain Hornady XTP in .357 Maximum TC Contender pistol. They seem to work well although I haven shot anything since switching to the 180 grain. Many years ago when they first allowed use of bullets rather than round balls I shot Hornady XTP pistol bullets in my grey hawk. I just discovered a few I had left. They are 240 grain. As I remember you could buy a box of 50 pretty cheap. I believed they performed well. I guess I got caught up in the accuracy and distance claims when I went to the Shockwaves. May need to try the bullets you recommended. What are you using for powder and how much? I been using Triple 7, 3 pellets. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  20. Looks like a winner! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  21. I’ve been using 3 triple7 pellets (150 gr) with Shockwaves and they shot great. Might have to do some experimenting to see what works with Barnes. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  22. What weight did you change to? I’m thinking of 250 gr as that’s what I’ve been using. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  23. There’s a you tube video whereShockwaves were shot into wet newspapers and also through jugs of water. Several did not expand well a couple did. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  24. I even had patchy snow but no sign of a hit on 4 different deer. Two sleepless nights is enough for me to switch. Hope they are as accurate as the Shockwaves! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  25. I’ve had some like that but after watching a couple videos on u tube I think they aren’t predictable. Fortunately I haven’t lost a deer yet but have had a couple I didn’t find till the next morning and a couple more that went quite a ways with good hits and little or no blood trail.
